The sun is setting behind the Ligurian Alps as I call it a day and sip from my freshly-made Aperol Spritz accompanied by a free aperitivo. It’s early March and Spring is about to arrive in the hilltop village of Pigna. A labyrinth of winding, narrow lanes and steep steps leads up to the historic centre and church. No supermarkets or high street chains here, instead two small “alimentari” and a handful of local restaurants advertising whatever it is they have on the menu today. It’s the kind of place where time stood still, the kind of scene you remember from long gone classical Italian movies...

One of my favourite adventures of last year was my road trip around Iceland. As expected, the nature was absolutely breathtaking!
But the heart of Iceland lies in the tiny, sometimes isolated, fishing towns. It lies in the personal stories of the Icelandic people. Join me on a trip to some of the small museums in Iceland and discover the personal stories behind some of Iceland’s most important events. #travel #Iceland #wanderlust

Did you know that nearly three quarters of Hong Kong consist of country parks and nature reserves? That means plenty of opportunities to go hiking! Join me as I hike up Lantau Peak and stroll along the Dragon's Back trail.

Walking in Bulgaria off-the-beaten path: it sounded like a brilliant idea! And it was indeed! Until we got lost in the middle of bear-infested woods! #walking   #bulgaria   #hiking   #travel   #wanderlust

#Sailing is a perfect example of slow travel. It’s the kind of #travel that is completely dictated by nature. It forces you to unwind, it forces you to slow down and take in your surroundings, to enjoy the moment rather than hurrying off to the next must-see!
Over the past few years, I had the chance to sail around a lesser known area of #Greece: the #Ionian islands! Why don't you join me? #slowtravel
